Couples Therapy

You Deserve Connection! You Deserve Love! You Deserve a Secure Relationship!

The most painful and confusing relationships are often with the people we love the most. Why is that?

As humans, we are born with the need and deep desire to attach to people because our survival depends on it. This need doesn’t change as we get older, but after many disappointing relational experiences, we often find ways to avoid or sabotage this very need.

At Alamo Ranch Counseling & Wellness, one of our specialties is helping couples like you break free from patterns of disconnection and conflict. We use evidence-based couples therapy interventions to help you achieve the best outcomes for your relationship goals! 

Our Couple Therapists have advanced training in the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, or Both! 

We don’t want you to feel alone in your relationship; we want you to thrive together!
